Being run over by a speeding sheboon is probably one of the more merciful ways to die in San Fagcisco.
Exclusive new video from an Uber dash cam shows the intersection at Taylor and O’Farrell Streets around 2 p.m. Sunday — the moment a couple was hit by a car that ran a red light.
The cars are all moving slowly, at least relative to the Tesla, which is seen speeding up Taylor, through a red light at O’Farrell.
It takes one second for the Tesla to broadside a Mini Cooper, which had the green light, and then hit a couple who were in the crosswalk.
In the video, you can see that Kelly Dean saw the Tesla coming, stopped, and threw her arm across her husband, before the Tesla hit them both, throwing them into the air.
“She was incoherent, gurgling noises, she was on her stomach with her head off to one side,” said Bob Navarro, who ran to help the couple and stayed with Kelly, who was unresponsive. “I could see a lot of blood coming from her head and we just kept talking to her, talking to her.”
Kelly survived and, as of Monday night, is at San Francisco General Hospital in critical condition.
But her husband, 39-year-old Benjamin Dean, died.
The couple, from the Fresno area, were in San Francisco celebrating their wedding anniversary.
The driver of the rented Tesla, 21-year-old Kelsey Cambridge of Vallejo, was arrested Sunday and booked for involuntary vehicular manslaughter.
